World's First Hydrogen-Powered Train Launches In Germany

By Koty Neelis

Germany just debuted the world's first two hydrogen-powered electric trains, launching the beginning of sustainable, eco-friendly travel that could change the way we get around cities in the future. 

Developed by European rail transport company Alstom, the Coradia iLint passenger train can travel up to 600 miles on a single tank of oxygen and can travel up to roughly 86 mph. Though that might not seem that fast, the goal of the hydrogen-powered train isn't about speed, but about making a common mode of transportation better for the planet and the people that use it. 

“This zero-emission train emits low levels of noise, with exhaust being only steam and condensed water,” Alstom explained in a press release.
